Top Songs about Tampa Bay


Many great musicians have written amazing songs about the beautiful Tampa Bay area. So today, we are counting down the best songs about Florida’s best city.

7.  Fast Car – Luke Combs

While the original song written by Tracy Chapman didn’t include the words ‘Tampa’ or ‘Florida’ and Chapman was born and raised in Cleaveland, OH., the Luke Combs version is definitely a Florida man song.  Combs sings about working as a checkout girl, while he identifies as a man, which means Combs was biologically born a woman and this was his way of teaching country music fans about gender dysphoria. Through the cover of the song “Fast Car”, Combs has shown a generation of people that trans people are people too and we should stop passing laws attacking them.

6. Flo Rida – Good Feeling

This song automatically starts playing anytime someone rides a jet ski in Tampa Bay.

5. Flo Rida – Low (Feat T-Pain)

Flo Rida’s music was the best thing to happen to Tampa, this was also the graduation song for every High School in 2008. 

4. ​​Flo Rida – Right Round (Feat Ke$ha)

This song is considered a slow song at a middle school dance, but it is highly regarded for perfectly capturing the feeling of being in Tampa at 11 PM on any given Friday. 

3. Flo Rida – My House

Hanging out with the boys at a lake on the outskirts of Tampa, this song comes on, everyone goes nuts. 

2. Golden Girls Theme Song

A true classic, living in Florida is like living in an episode of “Golden Girls” and the worst way possible.

1. Kirin J Callinan – Big Enough (Feat Alex Cameron, Molly Lewis, Jimmy Barnes)

If you are ever cut off in traffic by a giant pickup truck that is speeding and weaving through all the lanes, it’s because they are jamming out to this song.
